Escap 5

Propeller Boss Cap - Small cap. Big impact.

With the innovative Energy Saving Cap (Escap®) from MMG, ship owners can increase the efficiency of their vessels propulsion system by up to 3%. Unlike conventional propeller caps, the MMG-Escap® features an ingenious fin design that untwists the hub vortex while significantly reducing torque loss.

The MMG-Escap® propeller cap is not only suitable for new built propellers. It is also the ideal solution for making existing propellers more efficient. And because the investments required are manageable, the return on investment can be achieved in less than three months.

MMG propeller caps: An investment with multiple payoffs

As shown in various model tests, the average predicted saving potential for a 7,000 TEU container ship in traffic between Asia and Europe with MMG's energy-saving Escap® propeller cap is approx. 3%.

A calculation example:
At a vessel speed of 17 knots and a price for IFO 380 of 600 USD per ton, this results in a reduction of operating costs of up to 96,000 USD for an Asia round trip.

Thanks to the significant reduction in operating costs, the reurn on investment of purchasing MMG's energy saving propeller cap (Escap®) is achieved in less than three months.

Another significant advantage is that the optimised flow behaviour reduces cavitation on the rudder and hull, reduces wear, and thus increases the life time of the vessel.
